Summary of the legal action:
An action for damages was launched against Frontex in front of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in October 2021, over its role in an incident of refoulement. The incident is also the basis of a case against Greece. Linked to the case is the Not on our Border Watch campaign by the Dutch Council for Refugees, BKB, Sea-Watch Legal Aid Fund, Jungle Minds, and Prakken D’Oliveria. The campaign invites EU citizens to contact European Commissioner Ylva Johansson to ask the Commission to:
“stop member states and Frontex violating the Common European Asylum System…to take the necessary steps to end these abuses of asylum seekers by Frontex, and uphold the rule of law”.
Main grounds for the action:
EU agency Frontex charged with illegal pushbacks; Prakken d'Oliveira
Not on our border watch: Stop border atrocities by the EU and Frontex
